“First time visit and won't be the last!”
Reviewed October 16, 2013

Old Town is my favorite attraction in Prague hands down. It's everything I expected: countless souvenir shops, overpriced cafes and restaurants, host of street entertainers, extremely crowded, and narrow and winding alleys. It is also a picturesque place on a clear, sunny day where you can see for miles with superb 360-degree view of the city from the Vez Tower, breathtaking cathedrals and stunning edifices.

In short, Old Town is a fantastic place to shop, eat, drink, relax, picture op and people watch, then shop, eat and drink some more before heading back to the hotel. Lots of goods and good memories to bring back home!

“Beautiful Setting -- Out of a Movie”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Old Town Square is my favorite area of Prague. The area looks so beautiful and I recall feeling like I was on a movie set (where the buildings are fake). It turned into a more fascinating area at night with the lights from the surrounding churches beaming up to their towers.

“Go back in time to the 15th century and experience the experience of the city from this period today.”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Kosher eaters: Jewish Quarter closed on Saturday and public holidays.
Two kosher restaurants in King Solomon Dunitz and very expensive and not justify the high price.
There pankrac Mall Metro station which has a huge supermarket and relatively expensive.

“Wanted to stay for awhile”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

There was so much activity and so many shops, cafes, things to see and do. I loved the festive atmosphere and it was a fantastic place to sit, have a beer and some great food, and watch all the people enjoying the square
